Selena Gomez Considers Potential Retirement from Music After One More Album

by Patria

Pop sensation Selena Gomez has revealed that she is contemplating the possibility of retiring from the music industry after releasing one more album. The ‘Only Murders in the Building’ star shared her thoughts during an appearance on the ‘SmartLess’ podcast, where she candidly discussed her evolving relationship with music and the challenges she faced early in her career.

Gomez, 31, acknowledged that while she initially enjoyed the music scene and found touring to be an exciting experience, her perspective has shifted over time. Juggling her music career alongside her television commitments, notably her role in ‘Wizards of Waverly Place,’ presented challenges, leading her to reflect on finding a more settled path.

The former child star disclosed a previous episode of burnout in her career, recalling a moment when she sought help at a mental health institute and had to cancel one of her tours. Music, she shared, had been a distraction from difficulties in her life, making it both a passion and a coping mechanism.

Expressing a potential pivot towards acting, Gomez stated on the podcast, “I do feel like I have one more album in me, but I would probably choose acting.” She emphasized a desire to find a balance and take a step back to rejuvenate, even though the prospect of pursuing both careers simultaneously was acknowledged.

Gomez’s journey into music wasn’t initially intentional, as she revealed on the podcast. Disney’s influence played a significant role, packaging her as a multi-talented artist after she recorded the theme song for ‘Wizards of Waverly Place.’ Despite her initial intention to focus solely on acting, Gomez found herself navigating the world of music. She admitted, “I don’t think I’m the best singer, but I do know how to tell stories, and I love being able to make songs.”

To date, Selena Gomez has released three solo albums and three records as Selena Gomez and the Scene, leaving fans to wonder about the direction her musical journey will take after the anticipated release of her forthcoming album.
